Additional information about Mr Shaun Sexton

Having spent a large part of my training in the field of hip and knee surgery I was appointed senior fellow in hip and knee surgery at the Mater Hospital, Sydney. During this time, I was able to gain highly specialised experience in the latest techniques in hip and knee replacement surgery including robotic surgery, partial knee replacement and patient specific instruments. I published and presented on these techniques as well as on the optimum materials used in replacement surgery.

I specialise in hip and knee replacement surgery as well as trauma and sports injuries to the hip and knee. I perform 250 hip and knee replacements a year. I receive referrals from surgeons when hip replacements fail and require revision and have particular experience in revision surgery related to different artificial bearing surfaces.

I use the latest techniques in hip and knee replacement surgery including partial knee replacements, robotic surgery, and patient specific instrumentation. Care over implant selection and bearing surface is particularly important and I believe this accounts for my hip and knee replacement patient satisfaction being substantially higher than the average for surgeons in the UK.

I am an active researcher, particularly into improving results following joint replacement surgery.
